The Truman Celebration is ON!
We'll be gathering virtually on June 26th for our usual good time -- and the biggest fundraiser of the year for your Boulder County Democratic Party! But that's not all! In the lead-up to Truman, we'll be hosting a week of fun and engaging virtual events -- for FREE! Stay tuned for more information on our speaker and the run of show.
The Boulder County Democratic Party Office will be closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please STAY HOME and contact us via email at email@example.com.
Our statement on the COVID-19 Pandemic:
The Boulder County Democratic Party is committed to the health and safety of our volunteers, our delegates, and our community. State law and state party rules dictate what we can do, and we are currently exploring options to conduct the business we need to while keeping everyone safe. As of right now, our school districts have cancelled all event contracts -- as a result, County Assembly on March 28th will not occur at Skyline High School. Our team is working with candidates, campaign staff, the Colorado Democratic Party, the state legislature, and delegates to develop a plan and we will keep everyone posted via website, social media, and email. At this time, we are exploring holding a digital assembly on March 28th, so please continue to save the date.
This crisis has been and will continue to be exacerbated by the structural inequities that exist in our healthcare system. In addition to the White House’s flawed response to coronavirus, conservative policies on the federal and state level have weakened our social safety net. When our neighbors cannot receive the care that they need or cannot afford to take time off from work when they're ill, everyone is threatened. Our platform calls for strengthening our safety net through a single payer healthcare system and other programs that will support workers so that our community has the resources it needs in order to safely navigate this crisis.
Governor Polis has done an admirable job leading Colorado's response to this outbreak and we need to continue working towards legislative solutions that will prevent something like this from happening again.
The mission of the Boulder County Democratic Party is to elect leaders and achieve political policies that reflect our values. The party's democratic, all-volunteer organization will cultivate candidates for office, encourage community activism, communicate our values and policy positions, educate voters, and influence the actions of leaders at the local, state, and national levels.
